Far infrared heat (FIR) is known as a radiant heat, which is a form of energy that heats objects directly, without having to heat the surrounding air. This type is a far sector of natural light that is not visible to the human eye, but is felt from within.

Kuuma’s far infrared heat is the same form of heat that causes all plants to photosynthesize, creating energy to sustain and grow. Thus, heating your muscles directly from the inside rather than through external contact like at most traditional hot yoga studios. This allows for a wider range of motion during yoga practice. Far infrared heat can produce up to three times the sweat volume of any other form of studio heating system, while also maintaining a significantly cooler air temperature range for improved breathing and overall comfort. 

FIR heated hot yoga improves your skin tone and stimulates the production of collagen which is an abundant protein in the body that is responsible for the strength and elasticity of the skin, the largest organ in the human body! 

Compared to other hot yoga studios, Kuuma’s far infrared heat is up to 7 times more effective at detoxifying heavy metals, cholesterol, ammonia, alcohol, nicotine, sulfuric acid, as well as many other common toxins and pollutions. By boosting the natural human detoxification systems, FIR forces the toxins to exit into the blood stream and be excreted through sweat during hot yoga sessions. 

FIR hot yoga reduces pain and inflammation as the energy enters up to 3 inches under the skin, refining blood circulation and enhancing the distribution of oxygen to soft tissues, which decreases muscle stiffness more and more as you bend and stretch. 

Studies have shown that FIR energy can provide the same benefits as a 30-minute cardiovascular workout. This boosts metabolism which allows your body to burn a significantly larger amount of calories in less time with less work. One hour of intense hot yoga with conventional heating can burn over 900 calories. With Kuuma’s far infrared heat, this number of burned calories will be tremendously increased. 

This natural heating technology is medical-grade and is used in many hospitals and therapy clinics all over the world. Scientific Studies have shown that far infrared energy is especially favourable for those with:

  • Chronic muscle and joint pain
  • Anger management issues 
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Depression 
  • Anxiety
  • Cardiovascular disease 
  • High blood pressure 
  • Diabetes
  • Congestive heart failure
  • Rheumatoid arthritis 
  • Poor digestion

Kuuma is currently the only hot yoga studio in Atlantic Canada with far infrared heat technology. At Kuuma Yoga, you will have all the benefits of hot yoga, yet significantly improved by all of the amazing, natural, and life-enhancing benefits of FAR infrared heat.
